Our Personal web hosting plan is intended for individuals and web designers who are looking for an affordable way to show the world what they've got. Our Business hosting plan is intended to provide a web presence for small to medium sized businesses and organizations. It can also be used by individuals who want to host their own first level domain.

* Prices for additional services are on a per-month basis.

Here's how we bill for our services:

  • After we process your application for a new account, we will send you an e-mail invoice.
  • Although your account will be active immediately, your first payment is due within two weeks.
  • Once received, your payment is deposited into a virtual escrow account.
  • For each month of service, we subtract the monthly cost of web hosting and any additional services that you used from your escrow balance.
  • On the month that your escrow balance falls below the amount that we subtract, we'll send you an e-mail invoice.
  • If necessary, the invoice amount will be adjusted (up or down) so that based on your current usage the next invoice date will fall on your 3-month or 12-month anniversary.
  • We must receive payment within 30 days of the invoice date. If we don't hear from you in that time, we reserve the right to disable or terminate your service.

** Each customer is responsible for maintaining a current backup all data that they store on Website Express's servers. We perform nightly backups as a service for our customers; however, our customers acknowledge that they are responsible for their data. Website Express can not be held liable for any data loss or unavailability.
